My boyfriend and I just moved into our first apartment together. He works a full-time job and I'm staying at home. I'm just waiting on his work truck to get fixed and then I can drive his car and find a job.
These past couple of days have been rough. I love the apartment and so far, the area in which we live but I hate being by myself. I'm new to a big city. I don't know anyone who lives near me. I can't go anywhere on weekdays cause of not having a car. I get bored and lonely and sad in the apartment alone and I'm not sure what to do. I'm thinking about going to Church on Sundays as a first step since my boyfriend doesn't work. Any ideas?
Wow that is a huge adjustment for you, a new city, a new apartment, living with your boyfriend for the first time, give yourself a break that is a lot! Because you hate being by yourself and don’t have a vehicle yet, can you go out every morning for a long walk and become familiar with your new neighbourhood? Or learn the public transit system? Find the parks, library and museums and it will feel more like a community eventually. Once you have a job you will be busy meeting local people and you won’t feel alone. If time permits you could volunteer somewhere local until then. Going to Church on Sunday is a great idea, and a nice way to meet people. You will not go insane, those feelings are normal and temporary, my mom told me it takes six months to feel at home in a new place and I have found that to be true.
